Post-Conflict State Reconstruction and Sustainability Graduate Certificate Program
Rising conflicts and tensions in many regions of the world posing critical socio-economic and institutional challenges have increased the need for skilled professionals with specialized knowledge, applied learning, and training in post- conflict work. To address this growing demand, the School of Diplomacy is pleased to offer the first graduate certificate program in post-conflict state reconstruction and sustainability among New York Metropolitan area members of the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA). Courses in the certificate program provide a comprehensive foundation for building sustainable peace in societies emerging from violent conflict.
The graduate certificate program is designed for professionals who seek to explore a career or develop additional skills without committing to a master’s degree and for matriculated graduate students who wish to secure an additional credential. This coursework is a tool for government civilian planners, diplomatic and UN practitioners, educators, and humanitarian workers engaged in stabilization and reconstruction missions. The skills developed through this program are a valuable resource for international agencies, nongovernmental organizations and more.
The 15-credit certificate program can be completed in two semesters. Courses are offered once a week in the evening to accommodate working professionals. Students admitted to this program may elect to apply their coursework towards an M.A. in Diplomacy and International Relations provided they meet the M.A. admission requirements.
Please note that DIPL 6254 Fieldwork in Post-Conflict Societies can be substituted in place of one of the above required courses.
Application requirements for the Graduate Certificate in Post-Conflict State Reconstruction and Sustainability include a completed application form, a 400-500 word statement of purpose, official transcripts from undergraduate degree, a resume, two letters of recommendation, and English language proficiency.
